    Why cant fiat have a few Dealerships and service centers of their own like the TaTa's do?? They already make good profits ,so shouldnt be a burden and people will have more trust

    Anyways folks, though a sad thing to see our favorite Pandit FASS getting out of business, now we all Pune Fiatians need to be more vigilant and careful while giving our "Precious" babies to either Sky or Jay-Vijay. Based on my 2-3 encounters with Sky Moto, if we stay aware of what is needed by the car during servicing and have basic understanding of car mechanicals, we should be able to make these Sky Moto folks work the way we want them to. The showstopper would be "Analyzing any problems with the car" for which we need to harass FIAT call center by frequent escalations and follow-ups in case we don't get proper explanation and resolution of the reported issues. Any experiences of Jay-Vijay? Had got few calls from them in past and found them professional over call however don't know how good they are from technical perspective.

    All in all, I hope to see Pandit back in business sooner or later!

    Seems like the Pundit Auto Management is going 'Jaguar' way..., came to know from one of the employees in Pandit Auto, other members may confirm.
    Sad & Shocking news indeed; I'd very good experience with Pandit Auto, Model colony, recently.

    All who invest are businessmen and they need returns come what may. Pandit Auto is not a charity organization. All of them look for better opportunities. They have their vision and calculations to support their decisions ,as it is their money that is involved and time frame to succeed is limited. So let us not get emotional. The remaining two will find more vehicles to service now and will invest in people and may change for the better. Everything in life is dynamic. tomorrow is a different day. People come and people go. Life goes on:)

    Yes Abdul. I agree. My point is even if remaining two Fiat dealers acquire the current Pandit people that would be relief to many followed by availability of spares and good service.

    But looking at the current state of two dealer's service station, it would be very challenging for sure. Hope they improve and Fiat car owners get good support from them.

    The first question a new Fiat car buyer would be whether the service centre is competent and accessible. I am sure many in Pune would have bought Fiat cars simply on Pandit's availability assurance. Now if an established setup one fine day winds up, there is a cause for concern not that the Fiat customers would be able to do anything about it. But the emotional link is snapped. Buying a car in India is by far still an emotional issue. Pandit maybe absolutely right in moving ahead in life but the word that spreads around might be more damaging than actual.

    When I was in the process of buying my 90 HP, a relative who has owned a Palio in the past, said that I shouldnt have problems given that Pune and Bangalore have the best FASS in India. In Pune, it was because of Pandit Auto only. Its really a sad news. Hope Jay-Vijay proves to be the next Pandit, given that its so aggressive nowadays in Pune, by airing great offers for buying and servicing Fiats in the FM.

    Pandit auto was really good! Shocking news for me. The service guys were experienced and well versed with the cars. Sad
